Broncos McDaniels: Things have clicked with Brandon Marshall
The Denver Post
Broncos coach Josh McDaniels addressed a myriad of subjects at his news conference today, including:
* Brandon Marshall. The star and heretofore controversial receiver has gone from pay-me-or-trade-me holdout to preseason suspension to four touchdown receptions in his last three games.
“Without going back into the past, Brandon and I have never really had much of an issue with one another,” McDaniels said. “I don’t know when it clicked, but I’m happy it’s clicking and he is too, and our team is all the better for it.”
* The Chargers defense has eight takeaways in four games. Stripping the ball is a trademark of defenses coached by San Diego defensive coordinator Ron Rivera.
“You can tell they practice it because every one of their players try to get the ball out,” McDaniels said.
* These are not the Chargers that so frustrated former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan. Even with LaDainian Tomlinson for two games and Darren Sproles for four, the Chargers rank 32nd in the NFL with 53.8 yards rushing per game.
